COVID-19 Response: Heart & Hand continues to respond to changing public health recommendations and plans from Denver Public Schools. We are currently providing remote learning support to elementary and middle school students to ensure they attend their remote classes, stay engaged and keep learning! Heart & Hand is also focusing on the social emotional needs of our students and families during these challenging times. Career & College Readiness emerging leaders will continue to have one-on-one check-ins and access to drop-in hours. All community members can participate in Heart & Hand's ongoing food distribution weekly on Wednesdays from 4-6PM. More resources and program information can be found on our Staying Connected page.

Black Lives Matter: Moving from Ally to Accomplice

"For the past 10 years, Heart & Hand has worked alongside communities of color, nurturing the growth of children and accompanying families. At this critical moment in our country’s evolution, we must move from ally to accomplice to support and empower our students and their families on the path toward racial justice. We know that our conversations and learning must continue, and that our actions will be louder than anything we have to say. 

We have outlined our next steps, making commitments in the following areas:

  • Continuing to increase the diversity of our Board of Directors and Community Professionals Board in alignment with our strategic plan goals

  • Designing new programming for young people and families to address the trauma our community is currently experiencing

  • Codifying more intentional practices to elevate the voices of our young people and families 

  • Forming a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee and an Advocacy Committee to ensure that our momentum in this area continues..."
